Hello everyone,,



I think the large rectangular sections of black plastic on the front and rear bumper will age poorly and that the center brake light is unnecessarily weird. The rest of it is absolutely gorgeous.

In terms of investments, I think that $40k premium for a GT3 is a lot smarter than a $3k wing that basically does nothing but announce to people "I really wanted a GT3 but couldn't afford it."

I know I sound like an elitist prick, but I just think the basic Carrera is such a nice sports car, I don't understand the impulse to tart it up with fake motorsports parts.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

Welcome to 911uk. We have freedom of speech here too.

I love the colour of the 992 in that pic, and the wheels. Is it yours. Question

I’m completely undecided ? I like the side view but the rest, especially the rear 3/4 view looks like an Audi TT ?
Not sure what the rear brake light things are all about ? I’m told that it means 911 ? Why designers have to invent this kind of bold “aledged” design que is lost on me ? Which is probably why I won’t be getting one just yet ?

My Son said they looked like iron mans power source ? Not sure what that looks like but I can’t imagine it’s going to age well.
